A Little Crochet Never Hurt Anyone...

Now what with my selling off my spinning wheel and drum carder I bet some of you are wondering if I am giving up my love affair with working with woolly fibers... no way!  I've just realized I need to trade in my knitting needles for crochet hooks.  With the fibro I've learned, rather painfully I might add, that I can't handle complex patterns such as the ones I love for lace!  I just can't get through a project it seems... I start out, make mistakes, do my best to correct them and knit on.  Unfortunately, sooner or later in the project I get to a mistake that I just can't fix and it requires a start over.  Perhaps if I learn to use a life line when I am knitting lace?... well, anyway this has been the long way around to share a lovely crocheted lace pattern from my friend Olga over at Lacy Crochet.

 
Isn't this just lovely?  I think I am going to try my hand at this little blanket/throw as I am much, much better at crochet than I am at knitting and I need to feel a success under my belt.  It's been a while!
 
You should pop over to Olga's blog as she has many of her original designs on offer for free or for a small fee in her Etsy shop.
 
Hope you all are enjoying a pleasant day... it's pouring rain here... great for the flowers and great for picking up a woolly project to work on! :D
 
Hugs Always my dear blogging sisters!
